ASTDA Financial Policies

ASTDA offers financial awards to members through two ongoing programs—the Small Project Assistance program, offering grants to fund small projects aligned with ASTDA’s mission, objectives and commitments, and the Summer Fellowship Program, providing financial support for students and post-doctoral trainees to conduct a mentored STI-related research project during the academic summer break. ASTDA also occasionally provides financial support through other initiatives on an ad hoc basis. Note: Funds disbursed by ASTDA for any purpose to individuals or organizations may not be used for facilities and administrative (F&A) fees (i.e. indirect costs).
